National Weather Service Shreveport LA 352 AM CDT Mon May 27 2019 .SHORT TERM.../Today through Tuesday/ A large upper trough over the Great Basin will move eastward into the Southern Rockies by Tuesday morning. As a result, this will push the center of an unseasonably strong ridge that has been over the Southeast CONUS the last several days farther to the southeast towards the Florida Peninsula and away from the forecast area. Subsidence from the ridge will likely continue to win out and suppress any convective development. However, some of the model guidance has been a bit more supportive of diurnal convection this afternoon due to the flattening/departure of the upper ridge and increased southerly flow. Chances for isolated to widely scattered convection should be higher during the day Tuesday as the upper ridge moves farther away and the ejecting trough begins to move into the Central Plains resulting in increases southwesterly flow aloft. However, only low-end chance PoPs remain in the forecast. The increased cloud cover and rain chances should finally bring daytime temperatures back below 90 degrees F in most locations on Tuesday. CN .LONG TERM.../Tuesday Night Through Sunday Night/ Upper-level southwest flow aloft to maintain a generally unstable atmosphere on Tuesday night with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms possible. On Wednesday, an upper-level disturbance progressing northeast within mean southwest flow aloft will aid in destabilizing the atmosphere during the late afternoon hours. Boundary layer dewpoint values in the 70s F combined with increasing low-level speed and directional shear will support some strong to severe thunderstorms mainly across southeast Oklahoma and adjacent counties in Northeast Texas and southwest Arkansas. Hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes will be possible. Severe threat is forecast to diminish through the evening hours as upper-level support shifts northeast toward the Great Lakes region. A weak frontal boundary will slip south and linger across the region through the remainder of the extended forecast period. Near zonal flow aloft will lend to a nearly stagnant pattern characterized by widely scattered showers and thunderstorms each day. Temperatures throughout the period will influenced by the location of the lingering frontal boundary with highs ranging from the mid 80s across the southeast Oklahoma to the lower 90s across north Louisiana and deep east Texas. Similarly lows will range from the lower 60s to around 70. /05/National Ag. Weather Outlook, International Ag. Weather Summary
